At least that's noble...in the States they auctioned off the best seats for $ting$tewart$ummer$ relief.

They did the WaterAid auction here in the states. That's what I'm saying. So I assume they are doing the same thing down under.

Here's an article...

That is true too. There were different types of auctioned off seats.

But yes, the whole point is that it's highway robbery. And if that's how TM wants it, then they can keep their tickets.

Well, here in the states they were $50, $90, and $225. The floor and lower balcony close to the stage will be $225. The back floor, the rest of the lower balcony, and the upper balcony close to the stage are $90. And so the back half of the upper balcony will be $50. I think the pricing in the stadiums here have been doing the same thing as the arenas as far as location of the seat is concerned.

There are tickets available all over the place for the Fenway shows now. There are even a couple of auctions with pairs of tickets in the first few rows that are currently under face.

I'm still considering going, but now I just saw the forecast. Hot and humid with showers and thunderstorms very likely.

Could make a mess of the Fenway outfield.
Would be appropriate if Fenway flooded, cause the market for Cops tix is flooded. Auction ending in an hour on ebay, 4 field seats, currently going for $177 for the 4. About $1,000 face vale with fees. Lots of amatuer scalpers (ebay/craigslist) and brokers taking a huge bath on these shows.
People don't learn from history...before this the Stones at Fenway was Boston's biggest bathtub ever, but it looks like we have a new winner.

For those that have seen them in outdoor venues, what time do the police usually take the stage?
I'm seeing them at Fenway this weekend and the ticket says 7pm.
I know Fenway and the surrounding neighborhood is strict with curfew times, so my bet is: fiction plane 720-800, police 830-1030...anyone have any idea?

Dear member of Red Sox Nation,

We are just a day away from the Police making their historic

resulted in additional seating on the field for both previously
sold out concerts - in excellent locations.

Tickets can be purchased by clicking the buttons below, by
visiting redsox.com, at all Ticketmaster outlets, or by calling

Take advantage of this final opportunity to join the thousands
of Police fans this weekend for what will surely be two memorable
nights at Fenway Park. As a bonus, all fans who purchase two or
more tickets on the field to one of these previously sold out
shows will ALSO receive two free tickets to a Red Sox game this
season OR two free standing room tickets to a game with the
Yankees in September.

Here's what you may be able to purchase for the Police concerts:
- Tickets for both shows are in good locations throughout the
park and on the field.

Ticket prices (as set by the promoter)
- $225 on the field (per seat) and includes the Red Sox ticket
special offer
- $95 in the seating bowl (per seat)

Here's how you can purchase:
- Tickets can be purchased by clicking the links below, by

Sox home game and coordinate your tickets. Red Sox tickets will

majority of games or in standing room locations for the Yankees
series. Game selectionand seat location is subject to
availability and will be filled in the order of original Police
ticket purchase. Offer began at 1 p.m. ET on July 27, 2007. Prior

If the weather wasn't going to be so damn hot, I'd do it in a heartbeat now.

But I can't stand humidity...

Hand me that boot over there so I can give it back to you when you want to kick yourself later.
